This is my 10th consecutive award and I’m currently only one of 47 people worldwide with this award and only one of around 5 or 6 that has held it for 10years plus. The award is for outstanding contributions in Small Business Server technical communities during the past year. The Microsoft MVP Award provides Microsoft the unique opportunity to celebrate and honour an individuals significant contributions and say "Thank you for your technical leadership." I must say that whilst I continue to contribute freely to the community in a number of ways, I am always uncertain if my contributions have hit the mark, or been of the value that is deemed worthy of this award.
At Microsoft, we believe that technical communities enhance people’s lives and the industry’s success because independent experts, like you, help others extract greater value from products and technologies through the free and objective exchange of knowledge. As a Microsoft MVP, you are part of a highly select group of experts that represent technology’s best and brightest who share a deep commitment to community and a willingness to help others.
Woohoo… so what will change with me now? Nothing – I’ll keep on doing what I’ve done for the last 10 years. I’ll keep on contributing to the community via the seminars I participate in, via the free information available here on SBSfaq.com, via the vendors I interact with, via the events that I attend, and via the mailing lists and forums that I participate in. Thank you Microsoft.

Something local to our Australian readers is the CRN Fast 50 competition. Instead of Channel Champions awards this year, Sholto and the team at CRN decided to focus on the thing that really matters to us in the reseller channel – the revenue of our business. They are having a competition to highlight the top 50 business in the IT Reseller space based on your year on year revenue growth. As someone who has entered his business into many awards, I’ve found that you learn a load of things about your business which is a great advantage for you.
Go ahead – what have you got to lose? Enter here http://www.crn.com.au/fast50/
